is that pledge only counted until the health care law was signed in march of 2010 only for policies that were in effect before then. any way, these policies are lousy. >> there's two things. there was no extenuating circumstances when you said you can keep your plan. he didn't add a clause. in fact, he said clearly you can keep your plan. he said it once. he said it a thousand times. this wasn't a minor pledge. it was central to passing the law. it is sort of like the first president bush saying no new taxes. he broke that pledge. at least he had the honesty to tell everybody he was breaking the pledge. the president pledged this and never admitted he was going to break it. there's millions of people going to lose it, at least 15 million, including people in the small business community. many small business people are going to lose their plans too. >> we're going to get to that. dr. emanuel, the "wall street journal" reported this weekend that you in fact were part of a debate inside the white house at the time about whether or not this claim you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor w

told the truth to americans about his health care law going back to the campaign. >> when he was trying to get the law passed, repeatedly said, if you currently have health insurance, you'll be able to keep your plan. this morning, david axelrod was pressed on that point and said the majority, the vast majority, would get to keep their plans. he no longer works at the white house. from that podium, will you admit when the president said, if you have a plan, you'll get to keep it, that was not true? >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> greg, i want to talk about ridicule. when your policy or your campaign or your candidate becomes the target of ridicule on "saturday night live," have you a huge problem on your hands? >> i don't really think so. i think -- i feel like the joke is on us for laughing. oh, finally, the cool ki are now seeing what all the dorks have been seeing for two years and we're supposed to be grateful for this one little, you know,
between the lines there. and did the republicans or and did they make an agreement and get the law changed just yet? >> i don't think so. i think that really what will get the law changed ultimately it is failing all over the place. additional stories out today about lack of quality coverage and lack availability. and poor quality in coverage. people living in major cities that are not going to be able to get coverage in the local hospitals because of the way the exchanges are working or not working. the fact that so many people are paying attention to this and if it is not you, someone you know will lead members of congress and democrats will look for additional solutions and be open to things they were not open to six weeks ago. >> and a leading democrat in the house said the law needed to be more precise. and we are watching the democrats and seeing how they move. they will exact the change if there is any to comprehend. see you soon from washington ally. >>> right now house republicans are getting a briefing on the obama care roll out. they are meeting with mike hash, and we are monito
the president made when he sold his health care law. promises such as if you like your health care plan you can keep it and that premiums would drop by $2,500. those promises, mr. speaker, are now on the ash heap of history. here's what i'm hearing from my district. a woman from allegeny county recently showed me the letter she got from her insurance letter. the letter begins -- this is to inform you that we'll discontinue your health care plan on december 31, 2013. mr. rothfus: a father tells me that his family's coverage will be terminated next year. another woman in the north hills tells me she gets insurance through her employer, a small business, but her share of the premiums are frippling. when a product comes with a promise that is broken, you take it back and look for a new product. the empowering patients first health and the american health care reform act are examples of new health care reform products we can look at. they are solutions that empower consumers and not washington elites and they are a good place to start. i thank the speaker and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: f
. that could be something he might do. there are apparently some provisions in german law if he came here and testified before a germ parliamentary inquiry committee which is something the german parliament set up, apparently there is a paragraph in the law that would not allow germany to then extradite that person to another country. there might be some sort of provisions, some ways to work that. honestly the german government would probably do everything to try and prevent that. german officials have been saying go enand again, they're very, very angry but want to clarify the situation. they want an apology from the u.s. and want to move on. they certainly don't want edward snowden to become an issue between the two countries. right now, even his lawyer says with things the way they are right now, he would advise his client to stay in russia, suzanne seve fred pleitgen in germany. just a point of clarification. mr. sfroebler is not the foreign minister. we had that on screen. he's a member of the opposition green party, a bit of a maverick in the german parliament. just want a clarifica
administration has now delayed six weeks the enrollment. do you like that? >> this is a law that the president continues to figure isn't the law. he continues to make changes. this is the about 14th time he has made some change in the law i support legislation to actually give every american an opportunity to delay it for a year. i think we ought to remove this individual mandate permanently. >> i think it was senator mike lee who had a conversation with us. he said the law has been quote amend ad so many times whether people get exemptions or postponements or waivers that there have been some changes in the law that it's not the law that was passed by congress whether you like it or not. do you feel the same way he does about that. >> i do feel that way. we ought to legislatively. i'm a doctor, i want to make sure that americans get affordable care without all these regulations, mandates, taxes and there are ways that we can do it. what we are seeing with this healthcare law and so much attention is to the web site. the web site is really just the tip of the iceberg, there are big problems co
counted until the health care law was signed? 2010. and these policies are lousy. >> there is two things to it. there was no extenuating circumstances when he said you can keep your plan. he said clearly you can keep your plan. this is not a minor pledge. it's like the first president bush saying no new taxes in 1990 and 1988. he broke that pledge and he had the honesty to say he was. millions of people will lose it, at least 15 million including people in the small business community. >> we'll get to that. let's stay with the idea of the pledge. dr. emanuel "the wall street journal" reported that you were part of a debate in the white house about this claim. that you can keep your plan or your doctor is misleading. let me ask the question. on megan kelly's show this week, you blamed the insurance companies. >> if an insurance company decided they're going to change how they structure the plan, that's not the government, that's the business. >> but doctor, the obama care law demands they change their plans. >> first of all, i want to say the president takes very seriously what i -- it go
captured the attacker. martha: during their darndest to defend the law as new questions emerge on whether top administration officials lied about the rollout. we will talk about that. >> before obamacare we were having-- >> will those people be able to keep their coverage? i got this. [thinking] is it that time? the son picks up the check? [thinking] i'm still working. he's retired. i hope he's saving. i hope he saved enough. who matters most to you says the most about you. at massmutual we're owned by our policyowners, and they matter most to us. whether you're just starting your 401(k) or you are ready for retirement, we'll help you get there. martha: two planes collided in midair, and amazingly everybody survived. both of these planes were loaded with skydivers when they crashed early saturday morning. the passengers were preparing to jump at the time and were able to parachute to safety. one plane landed safely, the crashed to the ground. >> very, very lucky. anytime two planes collided in the air, it is a potential disaster for everybody involved. so we were all very, very lucky. mar
scrutiny, as white house officials admit some plans will cease to exist under the law. >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some that can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that's substandard. what is also true is americans who have insurance on the existing individual market will now have numerous options available to them. >> reporter: president obama making an obama care pitch to young people. you must sign up for health insurance to avoid a fine. >> when you look at the number of young people who actually want health insurance but are having trouble affording it, the fact we're making it affordable for them for the first time, that's a big deal. >> reporter: a new study shows 70% of eligible americans between 18 and 34 can now purchase coverage for less than $100 per month. that's if they can sign up. health care.gov was knocked offline sunday, along with the data hub that verifies eligibility for government subsidies.
if they liked it. but when pressed if the president of the responsible for the law failures, she said, whatever, yes. he is the president. fox news chief congressional correspondent mike emmanuelle on capitol hill with our report. >> reporter: kathleen sebelius defending the roll out of president's health care law but said, she is accountable. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. so let me say to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> reporter: chairman upton accused sebelius and others of false advertising prior to healthcare.gov launch. >> over months leading to october 1 launch, secretary and her colleagues at hhs looked us in the eye, and testified that everything was on track. >> reporter: after a lot of finger pointing, republican blackburn from tennessee pressed on who is to blame, asked if it was any of the top medicare officials. >> michelle snide ser snider is. >> excuse me, michelle snider is not responsible, hold me accountable i am responsible. >> reporter: the web site was taken off line last night and remained out of co
plans before the affordable care act became law and you really liked that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is, you have to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act from the very beginning. jon: senior white house foreign affairs correspondent bowl goal is live outside the -- wendell goler is live outside the white house. wendell. >> reporter: as you heard the president say part of the reason for obamacare to get rid of what he called substandard insurance plans sold primarily on individual market which covers 5% of the country. though the president's focus back in 2009 seemed to be expanding health insurance coverage to people who didn't have any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalizat
are not grandfathered and are not currently meeting the law. those notices have gone out. >> we just saw the president's promise and there was the secretary's answer and the person asking the questions is right there. congressman tim murphy from pennsylvania who is also a member of course of the house energy and commerce committee. he is also a psychologist and joins us now from pittsburgh. congressman, good afternoon and welcome fox news. >> good to see you. >> good to see you as always. she was in the hotseat and you grilled her as others during the committee hearing. what do you want to hear her say when she appears before the senate finance committee? >> i don't know if there is much they can say except to try to continue to put the cloak of silence over things and pretend everything is okay which they will probably continue to do. it is clear the white house knew you and secretary sebelius knew if you liked your plan you won't lose it. what could be more personal than a person seeing a doctor for an illness or psychiatrist for a problem and developed a relationship of trust and knowledge and now
between them and their doctor. >> as the law states, if you had a plan on the individual market that you wanted to keep, you could keep it, but the law could not order insurers not to cancel that plan. >> breaking the president's promise that if you like the care you have, you could keep it, hell no. the affordable care act it in its very rules are guaranteeing millions of people will be thrown out off the healthcare they want. >> karl rove joins us. nice to see you, carl. >> good to see you, greta. >> karl, the president is getting a lot of heat for that comment because people are saying he knew people would lose their healthcare plans are. i'm not so sure that he actually knew it that he was that connected to it i don't know if that makes it worse that he was that disconnected from the actual rollout or that he knew and looked the other way. i don't know which is worse. >> that's a good point. though, he had to know. on december 19th of 2009, the congressional budget office sent to congress a letter this was also received at the white house that said between 8 to 9 million americans ar
. >> you are in charge of the law. should you be different from all of the other americans out the there? >> i told the president we were ready to go. clearly i was wrong. >> sebelius took questions from house lawmakers for almost three and a half hours defending obama care despite the disastrous rollout and continued to twist facts about the health care.gov website and glitches. watch this. >> we were anxious to get the website up and running and functional which we have clearly failed to do to date although i would suggest the website has never crashed. it is functional but at a very slow speed and low reliability and has continued to function. >> oh, slow speed. how can she say that with a straight face? we tried on this program four times to create an account on health care.gov. we have been shut out each and every the time. earlier today while kathleen sebelius was testifying we tried to log on and look what happened. as you can see on the left it says, the system is down at the moment. we are experiencing technical difficulties and hope to have them resolve soon. please try later.
the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is you've got to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act act from the very beginning. >> essentially saying if you like your plan and they changed the plan to something you shouldn't like, i will change it for you. first off on the qualifying statement, 60% of all of these exchanges only have one option across the country. so you can't shop, you only have one product to choose from number one. number two, they did the slightest change to the health care which you hads, you are able to be kicked off, no longer to be grandfathered. the president did a wonderful two-step. instead of saying if you like your plan you can keep your plan. if you like your plan, you'll be able to keep it unless we deem it not good enough for
. >> unfortunately obama care as long as it's the law of the land. we had a vote in the last little kerfuffle over the last continuing resolution whether we would eliminate this staff carveout that treats them differently, better than the rest of the population. all democrats voted against it. all republicans voted for eliminating the carveout but it lost on a partisan vote. >> if a member of your staff goes into obama care in the district, is it the same that if i signed up for the same option? would i have the same or do they get a little extra money some place? >> they get the employer contributions for employer provided coverage. >> that they get anyway? >> that they get currently now under the federal plan. but, no other american gets that same contribution from employer. actually prohibited from getting this. you would get a subsidy if you were within 400% of poverty. so that's why this special carveout is really just egregious. senator vitter has been the leader on this effort to try to elim that the the carveout. democrats have voted against it every time. >> if you are not going into the
year like everyone else? >> sir, the way the law is written -- >> yes or no. say you're wrong, on that, yes or no, will you, yes or no. >> i will not give disinformation to the american public. >> you what? >> i don't want to get disinformation. >> i want you to do research, if you're wrong will you go into the exchanges -- >> if you can will you? that's a yes or no? if you can will you? >> i will take a look at it. >> that is not an ends. >> marsha blackburn was also on the committee asking why obamacare should be allowed to decide what plan is best for americans. we'll talk to her a little later this hour. there is word from the white house today that it is satisfied with the testimony brought kathleen sebelius yesterday. what do you think? were you satisfied? @marthamaccallum, @billhemmer. that is our twitter question of the day. martha: their story right now, bill, clearly you just have to wait. some of you will get subsidies you don't realize you're going to get. the these gaps being dropped on your policy and successfully being able to get one. they're urging caution, hold, hold,
if they liked it. but when pressed on whether the president was ultimately responsible for the law's failures, she got visibly agitated, tersely saying, quote, whatever. yes. he is the president. fox news chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel on capitol hill tonight with our report. >> reporter: lou, kathleen sebelius defended the rollout of the president's health care law but said ultimately she is accountable. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> reporter: chairman fred upton accused sebelius and others of false advertising prior to the healthcare.gov launch. >> over the months leading up to october 1 launch, the secretary and her colleagues at hhs repeatedly looked us in the eye and testified that everything was on track. >> reporter: after a lot of finge pointing in recent weeks, republican marsha blackburn from tennessee pressed on who was to blame and asked if it was any of the top medicare officials. >> michelle snyder is the one responsible for this de
million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> well, for many americans that's simply not true. the initial data is clear, health insurance premiums are going up for many working americans and health insurance companies are literally tossing people off the rolls. there is no question that's happening. >> from that podium will you you admit that the president said if you you have a plan you will get to keep it that that was not true. >> let's just be clear. what the president said and what everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought along by the affordable care act that create minimum standards of coverage. it's true there are existing healthcare plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the the affordable care act. >> so, even the president's spokesman, mr. carney, now admits mr. obama was not quite accurate in his previous statements. the question then becomes did the president knowingly
law with its thousands of employees. also sprint ceo, dan hesse. mobility a huge issue. if there may be more consolidation in the telecom industry. softbank acquired 80% of sprint. >> trying to upgrade the spectrum for them. then on this halloween, easily the scariest, most horrifying story we can find. this morgan stanley report that says the world is running out of wine. >> what? >> i can hear our viewers now. >> what? [ screaming ] >> yes, we hear you, viewers. we'll have that story coming up a little bit later on "closing bell." won't we, maria? >> we will. let's check the markets as we approach this final hour for the month. dow jones industrial average off the highs down in negative territory, seven points. 15,611. strong october. the month very strong. we're ending on a mixed note. nasdaq composite actually higher today. although it, too, is coming off of the highs of the day. 3932. s&p 500 where we are looking at a fraction on the upside. quarter point. 1763. steady moves. >> very steady moves. on this halloween the man they call sugar daddy. here's bob pisani with a look at
and since three years after its a law they are still fighting, can you imagine what it would be like if he said yeah, some people's rate wills go up. the thing passed by this much. if they said that, they might have lost the whole thing and politicians are always making compromises like that. for crying out loud, they made a compromise on slavery. >> when -- >> began -- >> when i see the president of the united states repeatedly including the state of the union assuring the american people you want to keep your doctor, plan, you will. he said it again and again and again. now we know that senior members in the very administration knew all along, they have known for three years, probably at least 50% of the people that applied, that would not apply. they would have to change their plan. that's a bare faced lie and i think somebody supportive of obama care. i come from a country that -- >> again, let's look at the perspective again on this. why did we do this? why did we -- why did obama -- a lot of people when they got into office said he made a big mistake and should have went into the eco
, but i'll let the law enforcement folks talk about it directly. >> again, that was from the president. local law enforcement has spoken to authorities here a number of times today. it's been quite chaotic as you can imagine anytime you have a major shooting. this is the first shooting in l.a.x. since about 10, 11 years ago. very chaotic, a packed airport. a lot of travelers. people walking up from the thousands to go nowhere, try to find hotel rooms. when you talk to authorities, here's what they said happened and how valiant one officer was who went after the suspect. take a listen. >> this individual was shooting as he went into the terminal. the officers didn't -- i repeat, they didn't hesitate. they went after this individual, and they confronted this individual in our airport. and unfortunately, it involved an officer-involved shooting, but that's what needed to be done in that particular situation, and that was heroic. >> bret, two quick things. behind me, here's people waiting to get back in and take off again. some flights are moving at l.a.x. these are the people finally let
to offer his perspective. governor, great to have you. let me ask you first, what we're seeing is a law designed to cover the uninsured. it's now booting far more people off their insurance plans than it can sign up. right now, on the nonfunctioning insurance exchanges. governor, the longer this goes on, what does this do to the president who can't distance himself from a law he set in motion and the cornerstone of his leadership agenda. >> he really can't, uma. the fact is, he can say i didn't know about these problems. well he should have known. frankly, i don't believe for a moment that he didn't know. no less than nbc indicated that the president knew three years ago that everything he was saying at the podium, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. he knew that wasn't true. if he had explained that more people would lose their insurance than would keep it and that this program will put more people on medicaid than on private insurance, this thing would never have passed. i think a lot of democrats are going to be scrambling for the exits between now and election time ne
appeals court reinstating most of a tough new abortion law in texas requiring doctors at clinic that is perform the procedure to have hospital admitting privileges. 12 of the 32 texas clinics do not comply with that. therefore they could be closed as early as today. the ruling comes just three days after a federal judge ruled the law unconstitutional. >> a bombshell new report revealing that some homeland security employees are fudging on their time sheets, claiming overtime while they sat at their desks and, you know, surfed the net. correspondent molly henneberg live in washington. molly, how long has this been going on? >> reporter: for years, gregg. federal investigators call it long-standing abuse of overtime payments this is happening specifically at department of homeland security. they have not got reports of paycheck padding at other agencies at this point, according to "the washington post." the controversy over something called administratively uncontrollable overtime or auo. it is meant to provide overtime pay for border patrol agents or others in the department who
make some changes to the law, specifically, extending the enrollment deadline beyond march 31st of next year. that could open the door if there is big senate debate about that to the possibility of extending and delaying the individual mandate which is the all-important way to fund this entire law. bottom line is, this effort has been led by jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. she is up for re-election in 2014 and has to defend the law. here she is on cbs. >> the rollout has been a disaster so what i'm proposing we extend the period in which people can enroll so we can make sure we get as many people who want health insurance able to enroll and be i believe to be covered. >> reporter: and that is an important point that the white house keeps stressing which is that while there are these 10 senate democrats or so who are pushing for changes they're not trying to defund the law, they're not trying to dismantle the law as republicans have tried. said the democrats are pushing for changes the president may not want to make right now but they're trying to make the law better although you notice
fixing obama care, making sure the law works, has to be top priority and with today's announcement that some big tech companies are contributing experts to help fix healthcare.gov, it's pretty clear the administration knows that. wolf? >> the news is not good over at the white house. let's move on. the health care law says that members of congress and congressional staff have to go into these new obama care insurance exchanges but some lawmakers are planning to exploit a loophole in the law. our capitol hill reporter is working this part of the story, lisa desjardens. >> reporter: you probably remember in 2010 when congress froze the affordable care act, they decided that members of congress and their staff should personally feel the ups and downs of the obama care exchange. they wrote that into the law. fast forward to now, and members will still be required to go into those exchanges, our elected members of congress, but because of the way the law was written, vaguely, it's not as clear for staff. there's a very messy debate over that. really quickly, here's why. when the law was
. >> but over the weekend it was bill clinton who fired back defending the law and the site. >> look at america today. we've got to implement this health care law. the computer deal will get fixed up, don't worry about that. everybody has forgotten, by the way, that when president george w. bush, a republican put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. >> over the weekend, yet another problem emerged with the site. a critical data center was shut down that's managed by verizon's terremark. it all comes as jeffrey zients promised healthcare.gov will be problem-free by the end of november. let me bring in carl bernstein and msnbc managing editor dafna linzer. good morning. >> good morning. >> don't you love bill clinton? oh, that computer thing, it will get fixed. but is he right? should we have expected that the problems that we've seen, carl, would happen? >> no, it's a colossal screw-up. at the same time that does not mean that the legitimacy of the affordable care act is undermined or should be und
enrolled in obamacare since the law went into effect. and now we know why. the numbers are so embarrassingly low that the obama administration is scrambling to wish her that this signature legislative achievements survive the obamacare disaster. i am lou dobbs. ♪ ♪ lou: evening, everyone. the obamacare website is a disaster. max baucus is calling for major changes in the program now in enrollment numbers for the first few days of the obamacare rollout are dramatically disappointing for the administration. the white house has been telling us for months that millions of americans have been visiting health care.gov, but the house oversight committee released internal notes from meetings that show only six people in total successfully enrolled on the first day enrolled. obamacare is a train wreck that has become a laughingstock as a result. as of today, the hite house pushed back expectations, taping them down and jay carney said that we don't expect those numbers to be very high and we never did. henry is at the white house with our report. reporter: embarrassed over the roll

years. it's not a bill. it's a law. i know the tea people think they know the constitution, i don't know if they read it. a bill becomes a law. once it does, you don't argue about it. you know what this reminds me of? there is a stupid award show the espys. you don't need an award show for sports because we know who won because they actually played the game. the best football team, they won the super bowl. i don't care your opinion on the best football team. it the law, you're supposed to help it along. democrats are not going into iraq but i'm routing for my country to succeed. that's now how they played it. they shut down the government and go to the map in every possible way and vote to repeal it 41 times and that's the patriotic thing to do about trying to bring health care to people in this country that don't have it. there are problems, let's work together to fix them. why aren't the republicans for medicare, supposed to be the party of business. for years business is complaining we're an unfair advantage because we have to cover workers because other countries don't have this stup
house will do about obama care. >> the law could continue to change or evolve or whatever word you want to use, steve? >> i think there is a good chance at this point that there will be a one- year delay of the individual mandate. isn't that interesting. we had a big government shutdown. >> the white white is pushing back hard on that every day, steve. >> but the congressional offices are hearing from their constituents, all over the country, i talked to republicans and democrats, their phones are melting down with people calling, i am losing health care and i don't know if i will be covered in 20014. people are nervous about this. >> there is a cascade of issues that are going to come running off of the hill if you delay the individual mandate. premiums could go higher and the number of uninsured is estimated 24 million additional americans and quick answer, does the white house want to go there? >> right now, no. they are resisting delay of obama care. i think you are hearing from members of congress who say, i can't mechanically sustain this and we have mid- term election with voters
